Welcome! This is an open invitation to join in on my blogging event called, Writer’s Quote Wednesday. This is your chance to highlight your favorite author’s quotes that give inspiration to you as a writer. Do you feel like your writing is getting stale? Are you looking for inspiration to keep writing? Then you have come to right spot!
Be ready to take part with videos and words, photos, and any other media you care to share. I would love to hear some quotes spoken or even sung! Please make sure and give credit to the author of the quote. If it is an image quote you found on the internet, please say where you found it.
There are no rules to follow. Either create your own sayings (because after all, we are all writer’s here) or use a quote from a famous author that you find gives you inspiration. Just make sure that credit is given for other’s work. You can use Fotoflexer or Picmonkey, or any other program that you wish to make your own images.
Each Wednesday, I will post the prompt and all you have to do is participate! You have from that Wednesday until the following Monday night to post your quotes. That will give me time to do a weekly wrap up and the new quote for the following week. On Tuesday, I will post a Weekly Recap of the past week’s quotes with links back to your blogs.
I will share your images on social media for added exposure. Copy the badge above and include it on your own post.
Tag your post on your own blog as “Writer’s Quote Wednesday,” so we can find the posts in the reader.
On your own blog post do a ping back to this post and make sure to “like” or “comment” on everyone else’s post. A ping back is when you embed (or copy) the http:// address of my weekly prompt into your own blog post.
Make sure to check my weekly prompt to see if your entry is there. You can copy the http:// address of your blog post and include it in the comments section of my original weekly prompt if that works better for you.
This week, I wanted to share something truly inspirational to me by Carlos Castaneda:
I am a truly positive person and seldom get down in the dumps. Although, I don’t think I am feeling those emotions either today as I write this. Instead, I have had to come to a realization about a family issue that has weighed heavily on me for some time. I will not go into the problem because it is not the problem, but my response to the problem that is worth talking about.
I have let this problem get to me, and frankly it makes me feel terrible that I allow such power to be held over my head. It is crazy that I let things that I cannot change (see my Mindful Monday post) get to me in such a way. Just crazy! And then… I saw this quote:
“We either make ourselves miserable or we make ourselves strong. The amount of work is the same.”
It came to me in a flash, that it was fine for me to feel whatever it is I feel (disappointment, sadness, rage, etc.) about the issue. Feel it and let it go. I am going to make myself stronger because I think it takes more energy to be miserable! Thank you, Carlos Castaneda, for setting me straight!
